Processes to protect and add value

Effective contract management is critical in ensuring both parties fulfill the terms of the commercial contract between them. This training course combines the theory and practice of contract administration and contract management. It provides participants with an in-depth understanding of key activities in the contract management cycle – contract development, contract communication, contract administration, managing contract performance and relationships, contract renewal and termination. The course highlights challenges that typically arise, and demonstrating effective management and resolution processes.

This training will help participants ensure improved project delivery performance by developing  knowledge in procurement, contract law and contract management.

Competitive advantage through business acumen

Commercial awareness is a broad concept that is often used interchangeably with terms such as ‘business acumen’, ‘commerciality’ and ‘business/client focus’. It is an individual’s accumulated knowledge of the business world and understanding of how to ‘read’ business situations. There is the implicit assumption, however, that with higher levels of commercial awareness organisations are able to achieve greater value from their staff.

Commercial awareness requires understanding the market and important stakeholder groups, identifying opportunities, and working with limited resources to create a profit, or in the case of a public sector organisation, squeezing the maximum from the budget available.

Defining needs and reducing supply risks

High quality specifications are of utmost importance in achieving the right performance.
Specifications are widely used in day to day activities ranging from public sector tenders through to smaller requests for quotations. They form the basis of what is procured and determine how well value for money is achieved.
A well written and unambiguous specification will help suppliers understand the requirements and enable organisations to build in fewer contingences.

Using the appropriate type of specification can transfer risk from the buyer to the supplier and have an enormous impact on commercial success.

Leveraging positions and securing supply

Organisations engage on a daily basis with customers and suppliers to negotiate various aspects of contracts, procurement and supply. Successful negotiation is only achievable if there is proper planning. This requires analysis of the external market, competitive forces and internal priorities. In addition to planning, the whole process must be properly managed and executed by negotiators who understand commercial drivers as well as influencing techniques.

This interactive course involves role plays and negotiation exercises. It provides participants with an insight into the stages of a negotiation process, the prerequisites of a successful negotiation, and tools to utilise in various negotiation scenarios.

 

Building relationships, securing supply, obtaining competitive advantage

Supplier Management has supplier relationship management at its core, but also incorporates a wide range of disciplines such as strategic sourcing and vendor rating. Strategic suppliers present the opportunity to generate competitive advantage, but failure to manage the relationship properly can reverse the tables and present significant risks. Effective supplier relationship management provides a focused framework for engaging and managing key suppliers.

Understanding how to categorise procurement spend, and manage performance elements of the relationship is a powerful, value-adding skill for organisations in a market where supplier failure or relationship breakdowns can have catastrophic consequences.

Unlocking value through procurement excellence

Category Management is a strategic and structured approach to the procurement of goods and services. A properly implemented category strategy is a powerful tool for delivering added value through reducing risk and cost, whilst promoting cross-functional collaboration and supply chain innovation.

This course focuses extensively on the activities, tools and techniques needed to develop a category strategy for an area of spend. Using a range of different case studies and real life examples, it will provide a practical understanding of how to apply key category management tools, as well as overcome internal resistance to change and develop a cross-functional approach to category management.

Ensuring efficiency in the value chain

Logistics and Distribution is a critical supply chain function. Employees in this function play a role in ensuring customer needs are fulfilled in the most efficient, cost-controlled manner. The course looks at inbound and outbound logistics, as well as key disciplines of warehousing, material handling and inventory management.

By the end of this course participants will discover how inefficiencies in logistics and distribution operations impact on overall supply chain effectiveness. Participants will examine the relationship between Logistics and Supply Chain Management and appreciate technology tools which are becoming increasingly prevalent in managing supply chains, as well as learning how to develop and implement good logistics strategies.

Supporting cross-border people and freight movement

Ports continue to provide a vital role in the movement of goods. With ever increasing vessel sizes and changing ownership models, ports need to be responsive in order to attract business in a competitive world, whilst still meeting the needs of accountability.

This course covers the types and functions of ports and terminals, their management, operation and maintenance. It includes global, international and national freight movements, passenger considerations, port and area controls, physical and human resource requirements, consignments, unitisation and consignment monitoring. The course also examines port development and planning requirements, associated infrastructure requirements and environmental considerations.

Secure movement and storage of goods

This course deals with all aspects of the inventory and warehouse operation. Participants will be introduced to issues of tracking, handling and managing goods and material that are held in stock. The course will also cover advanced stock control methods, demand planning as a tool for reduction of obsolescence and redundancy, methods for dealing with variety and proliferation, health and safety and others.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to use advanced techniques in order to reduce inventory and associated storage and handling costs. Participants will also have covered material from the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport unit on warehousing and inventory, and may be able to join a fast-track programme for this professional qualification if desired.

Effective management and operations of fleet

Managing a fleet requires understanding of many factors, including running costs maintenance strategies, health and safety legislation and taxation. Experts suggest that trained fleet management professionals can reduce costs by as much as 15%. This course covers fleet management in the context of both freight and passenger transport.

It also provides the opportunity to gain knowledge on the regulations and processes of fleet management. Participants will also be introduced to the concept of transport economics, policies and controls in their work environment.

Economic gains without compromising societies and environments

There is increasing pressure being put on organisations by stakeholders to satisfy not only the cost concerns of customers and investors, but to do so by operating in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. Responsible organisations must consider the impact of their operations on the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This course explores all dimensions of sustainability; the “triple bottom line” of economic, social and environment issues.

Participants will learn how to embed sustainability in their organisational culture such that it can be used to generate long term value, and security of supply. It will highlight how the alignment of sustainable goals within supply chains can positively impact on all areas of an organisation.

Understanding procurement management

Good procurement practice is the driving force for business in the 21st century. The procurement function is based on efficient service delivery and good customer service thereby creating a competitive edge. Businesses need to place emphasis on procurement management activities to be able to remain competitive.

This training aims to enhance performance and efficiency by increasing the knowledge and skills of project and support staff in managing the procurement function. Participants will understand the features of purchasing, procurement and the wider discipline of procurement and supply chain management.

Identifying risks and strengthening supply chains

Risks come in different forms, ranging from temporary shocks through to major disasters. As supply chains become increasingly complex networks with global outlooks, the risks associated with the supply chain also grow. Complex supply networks are vulnerable to weaknesses which may not be immediately apparent by looking at first tier suppliers alone.

This course trains participants in the methods of identifying a wide range of risks. It looks at how to assess the likelihood and impact of the risk and appropriate risk management strategies. It also provides participants with project planning tools in order to design supply chains to enhance resilience and reduce vulnerabilities.

Fraud prevention and identification spanning the entire procurement cycle

Procurement fraud can wipe out much of a company’s profits and damage a nation’s ability to invest. The quality of procurement can make the difference between success and failure – whether of private sector companies or of national economies.

This course looks at ways to combat fraud in procurement and minimise those organisational systems, processes, procedures, documentation and contracting processes that can be a barrier to value for money and competitiveness. The course further looks at how to reform procurement within the public and private sector and how to create a world class and a high performance procurement organisation.

We are able to support organisations in understanding the development needs of human capital through a variety of tools. These include self-assessment questionnaires, 1-2-1 interviews and group assessment exercises.

Our broad industry experience helps us to identify specific needs for individuals in all supply chain roles as well as some finance roles, backed by well tested assessment tools and techniques.

Our framework identifies the skills and competency levels required at various levels within the organisation, from operator through to senior management, placing different levels of emphasis on functional and leadership roles. This allows us to ensure the competency assessment and any resulting capacity building programmes are tailored to each client’s organisational structure and staff roles. The framework is intended to complement, not replace, existing personal development tools in organisations.

Whilst our competency assessment is conducted on an individual basis, we are able to overlay this at a team and corporate level to highlight where the organisation may be operating at a sub-optimal level in a market characterised by the need to maximise value.
